As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away.

Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.

Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself.

Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

The Marie Rose is superb because the entire exhibit is authentic. HMS Warrior is brilliant because, apart from the vessel's hull, almost everything that you see is a reconstruction. But what a reconstruction, what workmanship and what research! In addition, as a bonus, the guides are all friendly and knowledgeable. The guidebook recommends you spend 2 hours for a visit....

Beautiful vessel manned with really helpful staff. There were a couple of areas we couldn't see b cause there was a wedding taking place that day. Really gave you an insight as to how the life would have been at the time. The guide was really informative and hit folk to take part with him. Really good. Definitely a must... More

The HMS Warrior is a boat which combines old sail technologies with steam and as a result is a fascinating hybrid vessel. It has been well restored allowing public access to many areas

The thought of over 600 sailors sleeping in hammocks on the gun deck was mind blowing! The guides informative, the boat was brought alive with their facts. We all loved it, the twins aged 5, big brother aged 9, mum, and us grandparents! Lunch called so our visit was cut short - we will be back.

Interesting visit, amazing to think how old she is and how well preserved she is. Be aware of the odd trip hazard as you go round.

I thoroughly enjoyed my walk around the HMS Warrior! It was very interesting, reading about the ongoing restoration work on the structure, and touring around the different decks, seeing how sailors would have lived. Tickets would cost around £18 per adult so I would recommend finding discounts or using Groupon etc.

The dockyard ticket is well worth the investment, entrance to three ships and numerous other things of general or nautical interest. Warrior is a fantastic piece of history to board and inspect, the tours on board are terrific, the guides very knowledgeable, it is quite something to stand on the deck of a ship of the early Royal Navy, that...

Really interesting visit which we combined with an all attractions ticket. The kids enjoyed the mini interactive audio guides and the various tour guides scattered around the ship were great and very knowledgable. One, David, was great with the kids and allowed them all to have a lie in one of the sailor's hammocks which they loved. Recommend if you... More

Not a famous as Mary Rose or Victory but well worth a visit to see the transition between sail and steam.
